Earlier, Sidharth Malhotra was being considered to play the male lead in the remake. However, producer Ajay Kapoor, who holds the rights to the original, confirmed Aaryan's involvement in the project in a statement to Time of India. "We are excited to have Kartik Aaryan on board, as he has a connect with today’s youth. We felt only he could bring this well-etched character alive on the big screen," said Kapoor. The shoot will begin in October this year and the film will be ready to hit the screens next year.
